The Department of Nutrition & Dietetics, a vibrant department, focusses on holistic integrated teaching approach with hands on experience and research. The genesis of Department of Nutrition & Dietetics was in the year 1994 with Nutrition & Dietetics undergraduate program. This program was offered in combination with Zoology, Chemistry and Human Development. Under new education policy, Nutrition and Dietetics is offered as a dual major (B.Sc. NDHD) program .To meet the ever-rising demand of this subject the department has introduced single major B. Sc (Hons) program in Food Science and Nutrition in the year 2022. Undergraduate programme is carefully curated for emerging Nutrition Professionals. To develop evidence based health and nutrition plans, resources and bring sustainable change, Post Graduate Programme in Food Science and Nutrition was started in 2010.
